Attorney General William Barr appeared before the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday, where lawmakers pressed for more details on the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Barr said he would release the redacted report within a week but that he had no plans to release the full report to Congress. Barr also said that he offered Mueller the opportunity to review his conclusions on the report but that Mueller declined. This is Congressmember Nita Lowey questioning Barr.

Rep. Nita Lowey: “President Trump has publicly stated that this report is a complete and total exoneration. Can you tell us who is factually accurate? And will the released report include details on the obstruction issue and why, as you noted, the president is not exonerated, or will that information be redacted?”

Attorney General William Barr: “I’ve already explained the information that’s going to be redacted from the report, the four categories. That is what’s going to govern the redactions.”

Last week, the House Judiciary Committee authorized a subpoena for the full Mueller report. Barr will appear before a Senate panel today where lawmakers are expected to question him again about the Mueller report.
